Independent in Europe?

Thanks to Andrew Duffin for pointing out this story about Scotland's ferry services:
A spokeswoman for the Executive said: "The minister and the commission vice-president had a very clear discussion. The vice-president was sympathetic to the situation and was aware of the specific circumstances of the west of Scotland.

"However, the vice-president was absolutely clear that changes to existing ferry arrangements had to be put in place urgently to make the situation compatible with Community law

As Andrew says: "You may think you're the government, but we are in charge and we'll tell you what to do."
